November 19, 2019 | 0 Comments

Recently, author John Barbour posted a link to an article about him and his entertaining memoir, Your Mother’s Not a Virgin: The Bumpy Life and Times of the Canadian Dropout Who Changed the Face of American TV and I was thrilled to see that someone gave John and his book the attention it [...]

What I’m Thinking: Am I the Only One Who Loves a Good Snowstorm?

November 11, 2019 | 0 Comments

Sometimes I have a list of topics I’m eager to blog about while other times I’m feeling empty. That was the case this week until I saw on the news that the NYC area may get its first snow this season giving me a feeling of excitement. I’m quite sure I’m in the minority and don’t want to [...]

The Thrill of Reading

October 31, 2019 | 0 Comments

 As I’d mentioned previously, I was to attend New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association fall conference last week, which I did. Even though I no longer co-own a bookstore, I’m still a member because my business partner and I intend to do some offsite book events where there’s no need [...]

What I’m Thinking: A Bit of a Distraction

 I like to be consistent with my weekly blog, but this week has thrown a curve ball. Besides needing to meet some deadlines, I was finally ready to welcome a new “pup” into my home. (It’s been over three weeks now since I had to say goodbye to Logan.) His name is Louis and for now he’s a [...]

What I’m Thinking: Wish I Knew What He Was Thinking

October 1, 2019 | 0 Comments

    Anyone who knows the story of Logan, the Yorkie that I rescued about five years ago, may understand the anxiety I am feeling about the decision I must make. For the last several days he’d refused to eat and only wanted to sleep. A couple of times he vomited bile, while another time [...]

What I’m Thinking: Casting Those Stones

September 24, 2019 | 0 Comments

  There seems to be so much throwing stones at people who have made mistakes in their youth, some egregious mistakes, some foolish mistakes and some thoughtless mistakes, but I feel we are going overboard by demanding these now adults lose their jobs and having their reputations ruined by [...]

What I’m Thinking: All About Retro…But Why?

September 17, 2019 | 0 Comments

Not long ago I sold my big old Colonial and ended up downsizing, even though I didn’t downsize as much as I initially thought I would. The Dumpster was filled to capacity before I moved but I still managed to bring along bins upon bins of autographed copies of books I’ve collected over the [...]

Tang, Cool Whip, Margarine, Oh My!

September 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

When I moved to Long Island many years ago, people were surprised to learn that I had grown up on a farm. For some reason, I didn’t exude a farming persona. People would ask me what it was like and say how awesome it was to always have fresh cow’s milk, butter, beef and more. Living off the [...]
